Purpose of role:

Genie Shopping Network (GSN) is an exciting new business within the Genie Ventures organisation. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the early stages of a fast-growing business unit within a successful e-commerce technology business. We work with leading online retailers to drive valuable new customers for them through the Google Shopping CSS programme across Europe, and are rapidly becoming one of the top affiliate companies in the UK.

This is a brand new role that has never existed in the team before. This role will support the team
through marketing activity that generates incremental opportunities with both new and existing clients and elevates Genie Shopping’s profile in the UK and European online marketing landscape. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to shape the digital marketing and events strategy from the ground up, with a dedicated budget plus the potential for management responsibility as the team grows in future years.

We are proud of the business we’ve created in a short space of time and very excited about the future growth opportunities. You’ll have a passion for marketing, championing the voice of the customer and raising the profile of Genie throughout the industry as our business undergoes rapid growth this year.
